Task 3: 5 Heroes of AIDS in Africa (53 min)

  3. Who made the greatest impression on you? Why?
  4. AIDS is not just a personal tragedy but a national one. Based on the film, give examples of how an entire community is affected by the epidemic.


Written Task

Choose one of the people in the film and write either an interview with the person or an article where you present his / her work and life situation.

Task 4: Working with Statistics

  1. Enter the site Aids in Africa. Go to "Epidemic charts". Compare the two charts: "Display current HIV levels" and "Display HIV over time". What information can you find from these two charts?

  2. Move on to “People charts”. Go through the first 6 charts. Take notes and sum up the information you are given.
